    all masses are attracted to the earth at 9.8m/s^2

    The velocity changes with height, not acceleration.

    The acceleration downwards due to gravity (g) is a constant, 9.8m/s² for all masses, from any height. Acceleration does not vary.

    The velocity of a falling body will vary according to the height from which it was dropped.

    on earth the acceleration due to gravity is always -9.81 m/s^2
